Invest in a UPVC Front Door

Investing in a property is one of the biggest investments you can make, and part of the fun is renovating it and decorating it to your style and individual preference. The structure and roof of the building is the most important to get repaired, followed by the exterior doors and windows. You want to ensure the bad weather is kept at bay, as well as secure your family within. Once the outside is complete you can then look at ways to make it look stylish and modern inside.

Spending money on quality products is a wise decision as doors and windows should last the house for a very long time, the better quality they are the longer they will last. Also if you’re planning on selling the property in a few years time then buyers will be concerned with the materials these products are manufactured from.

You won’t find it difficult finding a style to suit your new home as there are all kinds of designs and materials facilitated for external doors and windows, the only problem you’ll have is selecting which you prefer. Most people shop online these days, even if they buy the actual products from the high street they still do their research online, and this can be the best way to get some ideas of what is available and how much you will need to budget for.

The array of front, back, French, patio or interior doors are huge and one of the most reliable are UPVC and composite doors due to their many advantages in comparison to timber and aluminium. Wood finishes, half-glazed, full glazed, solid doors, decorated, stained glass, white, green, blue or and wood finishes all have their own appeal, the final decision is all yours.

In the past people generally chose timber doors for their homes as they are solid and attractive in appearance. However with the advent of UPVC and composite doors more and more homeowners are choosing these materials as they need relatively little maintenance and once fitted are proven to protect against harsh weather conditions and intruders.

Doors are an important element of our homes, as they are not only there to look good and keep out the harsh weather but also to keep us safe and secure inside. So when it comes to choosing your doors you really need to give it some serious thought, from the material and design, to the accessories and colour. UPVC doors are a tough and attractive option that need little upkeep and are extremely secure.

UPVC stands for uplasticised polyvinylchloride and has become the main choice for a range of home fittings including windows, conservatories and doors. Good quality doors can be expensive and so you want them to last a lifetime. Whereas timber needs maintaining to keep it looking good, UPVC is very difficult to scratch or mark and will just need wiping down now and again to keep it clean. Your doors are the first thing visitors, or potential buyers, are going to see and first impressions are important, think of them as an investment just as you would any other renovations or updates made to your property.

You may thing that UPVC only comes in white, however this isn’t the case. It’s possible to get practically any colour or style you like, if you like the look of natural wood then choose from a wood grained mahogany and golden oak look, or any other array of hues and finishes. Your visitors won’t be able to tell the difference between these and natural wood and it’ll add a real touch of distinction to your home. You can get them to match up with your windows too in various attractive colours and woodgrain finishes.

A UPVC front door will also help improve the energy efficiency of your home, silicone sealant keeps the cold air out and the warm air inside, with less to pay on your heating bills you’ll be able to spend more on your doors! If you’re looking for doors to suit someone with mobility problems then there are low-threshold options for full disabled access and complying with Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) requirements.

When choosing any kind of door or UPVC window for your home there are certain aspects you need to consider, mainly the cost, durability and, particularly for exterior doors, security. UPVC can offer all these and more and you can find them to complement each other giving you an exact colour match across all products. Look online for reputable manufacturers who can supply guarantees and high standards as well as quick delivery and advice.
